Hmmm, I'll be busy for the next 2 weeks at least - if I'm free after then I'll put something together.

Unity seems like a good option to me, too as it has Raknet built in... I've messed around with C++ networking before but it's a lot of work to get everything going that you get built in otherwise.

EDIT: I have a multiplayer concept around that I'm thinking of revisiting, in fact the one that I messed around with Boost.Asio for, would it be alright restarting that for this competition? It never really got to a "game" state before.

You can reuse old code and stuff like that, no problem.

I'm looking forward to the creative variations of non-"fighter" entries.

@davidp:

Rules: Entries should be started and ended within the timeframe of the competition (feel free to put up your game threads and begin brainstorming earlier, though) and must be made for the competition only.

The game must be made for the competition only!? So I can't make it for my website as well? Durr...?

The way I read this it seems I can't enter another contest with my game, but clarification would be nice (in case it would apply to means of distribution, pricing, international politics, etc).

You can do anything you want with the game (put it on your website, sell it, submit it to IGF, tie it up and spank it, etc.) as long as it was started for the competition.

Can I ask a stupidly stupid questions regarding multiplayer games, and if a multiplayer game is a valid entry?

The start and end dates couldn't have been worse for me Sad A shame because, although I never participated in a compo and never felt like it, this one sound like a great opportunity to do a very simple and fast game.

The idea of the compo is to make games based around the concept of versus. As such, it's more interesting that your game's primary role be a versus game, but I don't see why you can't add extra functionality on top of that.

Can I ask a stupidly stupid questions regarding multiplayer games, and if a multiplayer game is a valid entry?

I don't understand where the question came from, to be honest. Competitive multiplayer games, online or offline, are the whole point of the competition.

Hey Everybody,

Was just send this thread by a friend who wants me to compete and woh, this looks like it will be fun, so I will definitely be working on my own entry.

When that is said, let me introduce myself, my name is Chris Benjaminsen and I am one of the founders of Player.IO - A cloud platform for games, that among other things provide realtime multiplayer support. From my google alerts it's apparent that you guys have been talking a lot about our service so I thought this competition would be a great opportunity to give you all a chance to try it out.

Thus, if you want to use Player.IO for this competition, create an account at our website and send me an email at [email protected] and I will award you 4 months of free Plus membership ASAP.

Quick about Player.IO - Our client API fully supports Flash AS3, Unity3D and C#, a total list of services can be found here

Happy hacking
Chris Benjaminsen
